Looking for a case for my needs, was going with the Define R5, but I want to know if there's a case that has the same features as the R5, but looks a bit nicer for someone who's possibly going to put the case on or next to their desk. I do want a big window though, doesn't have to be TG, but that would also be nice. Also, case has to have these colors: Black, black/white, black/red, and maaaaybe white/black. Preferably the other ones though. Budget: $200

Oh also, should I get the p400s? The p400 and the p400s are the same price right now. I would like it to be quieter. :P

The S version has dampening material so it will be quieter..

Id recommend the s340 elite, Im going to be using it for my build and it has tempered glass

I can do that, but then I'd have to get rid of my optical drive... :( But I guess I can do without it :P

You could always get an external optical drive.

Fair enough, no cases come to mind with a 5.25 bay

Phanteks Enthoo Pro M acrylic or tg version. Both look cool.

Pro.) I would also go with NZXT S340 Elite because has a very nice tempered glass side panel and is very clean and has a nice look to it. Comes with many great features!

Con.) You will have to get rid of optical drive and go with a USB for windows
